I bought this maxi dress on clearance at Nordstrom.
Because I don’t always want to wear a long dress, I installed little loops at the waist and buttons on the hem to make it “convertible.” It’s a soft jersey, so it flows nicely, and so far no one has noticed when I wear it short that it’s a long dress pulled up! Anyway, it’s like two dresses for the clearance price of one – sweet! :)
